Kudos to the following Hibbing businesses that have refaced/updated their buildings. This is a sign that Hibbing is still a great place to live and believe in. They all look great and I hope there will be more that follow. Northern Lights Glass, Range Sports, Sunrise Bakery and Johnson Floral (both moving), North Star Dental, Orthopedic Assoc., Hibbing Utility Art Wrap project, Hibbing Tourists Center / Lowes project and anyone that I may have missed.

Kudos to School Board Director Kim McLaughlin. Thank you for being honest with the community during these long, difficult labor negotiations with the Teachers Union concerning the school districts financial status. The tax base is getting smaller and the taxpayers are getting older at the same time with most living on fixed incomes. There is no magic hope chest to go to. What there is available is all the School District has to spend.
